Denny Hamlin: Not Racing at Richmond

Rotowire.com
Update: Hamlin tweeted Wednesday evening that he will not be racing this weekend at Richmond International Raceway. "Unfortunately I won't be racing this weekend at Richmond," Hamlin said. "It kills me to not be in the car for my team and sponsors but after long discussions with the doctors we have decided to wait on my return back to racing."

Recommendation: His racing in Saturday night's Toyota Owners 400 was a long shot anyway. Hamlin was injured in a violent crash at Fontana just five short weeks ago. With the high speeds and huge crashes of Talladega looming just after Richmond, we're willing to bet we won't see the JGR star back in action until the May 11 race at Darlington.
